I collected my notes and prepared for my debriefing with Master. How long did that take?
Days and nights are too unpredictable to be used to keep time. We simply sleep when tired, and do our tasks when we rise. We come when Master calls and leave when we're dismissed. After that, we do whatever we please until we're tired or he calls us again. That is all there needs to be.
LJ stood in line behind me as I stood in Master's cluttered throne room, opposite the big screen TV.
"So, my dearest Twilight Tragedy, what's the newest up-and-up in the kingdom of eternal chaos?"
Master has no actual need for these reports, his eyes and ears are everywhere. After a thousand years or so, everything alive fears and/or hates him. Nearly all know better than to ever disobey him.

I don't know how long it's been now. Master Discord sometimes messes with my perception of time. Sometimes it feels like eons, and others -if I didn't have clear memories of LiarJack's little sister growing up and dying of old age (after Scootaloo died as an adult mare defying master) I'd think it all happened yesterday. The Elements of Chaos seem to have rendered us immortal.
Master Discord has no need for servants, minions or slaves, but he keeps us around anyway.
Liarjack is almost the only one of us who seems to remember how things were before . . . everything began.
She smiles and tells me that everything was rigidly frozen with order before Master Discord took 'control.' That nothing and no one ever changed, the world was caught in a predictable monotone cycle.
I'm relatively certain she's lying, it's hard to tell though, she's gotten much better since things began. I know she's only saying it though so I don't get upset, so I'm not angry and I'm g

Twilight Sparkle"Alone In A Group"
Greetings, my name is Twilight Sparkle. I am a unicorn and I am -not- a goth. These are my natural colors. Yes I am the personal apprentice of Princess Celestia and holder of the central Element of Harmony 'Magic' and basically the leader of the Elemental Harmony Squad (Pinkie or Rainbow came up with that name, not me).
Huh? I am NOT a Mary Sue!
1) If I was a Mary Sue I'd have been teaching my new friends what it -meant- to be friends when I first came to Ponyville instead of the other way around.
2) My spell to redirect the parasprite's hunger wouldn't have backfired.
3) My failsafe spell wouldn't have failed.
4) Also I would have defeated an actually Ursa Major instead of pacifying an Ursa Minor.
5) I'd have won the Running of the Leaves race instead of coming in fifth place.
6) I wouldn't have a nervous breakdown every time a plan of mine blows up in my face.

Ever since Rainbow's denouncing of Lightning Dust, which occurred in front of not only her friends, but her entire squad of recruits, this was something she knew she had to do. But that didn't mean she had to like it. She'd been practically trembling on the approach to Spitfire's office. What she planned to do here, and what consequences that might emerge from it, were things she did not care to think about. But she also knew that if she didn't do this, if she simply kept quiet and went along with what had been going on, she'd never forgive herself for it.Wonderbolt Academy - Alternate ending in Short Stories More Like This
She lifted her hoof and pushed the door open. Once open, Rainbow saw within the office.

The sun was shining brightly and there was a cool breeze. The spot they'd chosen was also good, on the top of a green and grassy hill, overlooking the town of Ponyville below.

Yep. There was no doubt about it. Today was a good day in Ponyville.
So good in fact that a particular group of friends were planning on having a picnic together.
Walking down the main street of the town, Applejack was heading towards a familiar tree-shaped house. The home of one of her best friends. Upon reaching it, she knocked gently on the door.
"Twilight! It's me!" She called.
A few moments passed before there was a response. The door opened to reveal a small purple dragon on the other side.
"Mornin Spike. Seen Twilight anywhere?" She asked.
The young dragon nodded.

The recent attack brought about by the unexpected and hitherto unknown changelings and their Queen, Chrysalis, had left much of the city damaged. By some miracle there had been no casualties, only a few injuries here and there. Of course it made sense. The changelings were, after all, using the ponies as a food source. It made no sense that they'd want them harmed.
Ponies all about the capital were grateful that the attack had left only structural damage. Damage which was easily rectified. But for one lone unicorns, the damage was far deeper.

But sitting on a grassy hill in the middle of the park, was one pony who did not have a smile upon his face. A white stallion with a blue mane, wearing a rather ornate red uniform of a captain, who sat there on the top of the hill, and was experiencing worry like never before.
Over the course of his time as a member of the royal guard, he had been against many things that might cause other ponies to quake with fear. He had faced down raiding parties of dogs without hesitation. He's fended off hydras and manticores. He

Now, it was the home of their resident Princess, and former librarian, Twilight Sparkle. Standing tall and beautiful, it was truly a sight to behold. But, at least for the time being, it was still a largely empty building, with Twilight's belongings still in the process of being moved there. Even with all that, there were still many vacant rooms that needed to be taken into account one day. But right now, Twilight, who was busying herself with a nice book in her new kitchen, would deal with those issues at the right time, which wasn't right now. Flipping through her pages, she smiled to herself as she magically levitated a cup of tea to her lips and took a sip.
After drinking it however, her attention was drawn to the unmistakeable sound of somepony yawning loudly. Turning, she smiled as she saw that it was none other than her young dragon assistant, Spike, who was walking
A Higher CallingIt was a happy day for her, that much she knew. Everything that she’d been hoping for these many long centuries had finally come true. Princess Celestia, the one who raised the sun in the sky, was, on this day, no longer the sole ruler of her nation. For today was the day that her beloved sister, Princess Luna, had returned from her thousand year imprisonment on the moon. Although no pony alive today was old enough to recall the times when there were two Princesses in their world, they’d nevertheless accepted her gladly, a fact which Celestia had appreciated.A Higher Calling in General Fiction More Like This

There are many places in the world that a pony might never find themselves. It could be some faraway, exotic city, perhaps some famous monument, or maybe even it's glittering jewel of a capital, Canterlot. But these are good places, the kinds of locations where, though they may never see them, they would cherish the chance to do so. And then, there are the other places they'd never see. The kinds that they'd thank their lucky stars that they'd never have to set eyes upon. Places like the darkest regions of the Everfree Forest, the hives of the Changelings or the dangerous caverns beneath the earth where the Diamond Dogs roamed.
Then there is the worst place of them all. A place that old mare's tales would say could bring insanity even to the most hardened of ponies just by gazing upon it. A place so foul and dark that it was the stuff of nightmares.

It was, however, the first time it had landed her in bed with another mare.
She blearily opened her eyes, the open curtains allowed Celestia's sun to invade her retinas in full force, making her clamp them shut again. She then clamped a pair of hooves to her head, and took up the foetal position. The irritatingly familiar sensation that made every noise seem like a horrifically out-of-tune violin being played in her skull returned. She summoned the energy from her massively depleted reserves to stretch her limbs, which relieved her aches, slightly.

Octavia brandished her cello bow like a sword, waving it at the white unicorn across from her, who gasped in mock amazement.
"You think you can defeat my music, Violin player?"
"Whatever. I will make music so loud, your precious cello will play nothing but dubstep for weeks!"
Octavia took her turn to gasp in a most theatrical manner, once more jabbing her bow in Vinyl's direction.
"Wanton words shall be your downfall, Mistress of the Mic'! Now I will show you what real music sounds like!"
Octavia brought her cello up on its stand, giving it a showmarely twirl before locking it against her shoulder and beginning to play. She burnt across the strings in a rapid fashion, a way she hadn't played in for years. Inevitably, one of the strings would probably snap, but she had spares at home for after the little battle. Around the moment Octavia's ankle began to cramp she decided to wrap up the piece in a melodramatic crescendo, bowing t

Reality - IntroductionI sat on my couch, my laptop balanced carefully on my legs as I was typing an essay for class. Glancing warily at my clock, I yawned as I read the time. 2:45 AM. I looked back at the screen, reading quickly as I went through checking for spelling errors, and when I was satisfied, I shut it down and walked upstairs to the bathroom. It wasn't like I was tired, just simply bored. I looked at myself in the mirror, the lanky arms, dark brown hair, the emerald green eyes, and in particular the scar under my eye. It had been there for weeks after a rather disturbing night terror I had, but I none the less accepted it there and rather liked it.

Location: US Marines base, America
It was Christmas today. Things weren't as cheerful as last year. I had received permission today to return to my bunker from the medical area. According to them, I had three broken ribs, a fractured wrist, and definite scarring on my back from the torture I endured on Peleliu. Despite everything that happened, I still somehow managed to put on a fake smile and work through the day, and forced myself to act normal. It can't be the same anymore, not with my closest friends and family gone. They had one of the Medics walk me back, just to make sure I was alright. The second I walked in and heard the door shut, I snapped. I honestly don't remember what happened, and Sarge had later said I trashed the whole room, and they had to sedate me to calm me down. I don't really know why I did that. Perhaps it's just pent up stress and anger, or maybe I'm just hearing that damn voice again.
Anyway, today was Christmas and everyone was at the
Return to the Past pt. 1My name is Edward Richtofen, and I'm a prisoner of war. Not of a war you may think of, but of a war that had started long before my existence. A war that I never thought existed, a war sparked by a group I thought was myth; a Nazi organization called Group 935. The Animus was what showed me the truth, what allowed me to go back into the past, through the fabric of time itself, and search for something. They wanted something, and were using me to find it. They called it a Focusing Stone, an Element that gave them power and allowed them to stay in control. If they get their hands on another Stone, everything will change. They want to make us all their slaves. When they first brought me here, I was afraid of what would happen if I tried to fight back, but now, I'm afraid of what will happen if I don't. But I can't do it alone, and I think that I won't have to. I met someone here, her name is Alison, and I think she's on my side.

Assassin's Creed OC -Backstory-I was sitting on a bench with a few of the other Courtesans in the town square by some trees, waiting for one of the young men walking by to stop, or ask for one of the other women or even myself. I'm at an age now, where it's not unusual to be considered a whore, or anything of that nature. I thought about my life in perspective, my Papa had died of a severe illness when I was 7, and my Mama had died in childbirth. God could only allow them to watch over me now. Even though I was used to it, the same depressed feelings came back out and all I could do was try to hide it in my eyes. Glancing around, I saw a young man walk past. He stared at me for a second or two, and looked as if he was going to stop, but continued to walk at a hurried pace. Night was falling quickly, and I had to get back to the brothel to finish my chores. I said my goodbyes to the other Courtesans, and walked away.Assassin's Creed OC -Backstory- in General Fiction More Like This

Freedom was his at last, now it was time for the others. He managed to climb out of the tiny cage unnoticed, and quietly snuck out, running towards where Alison and Alex were.
Screams echoed in the small cave, as well as the sounds of laughter and the sound of something being hit repeatedly. Alex rolled over onto his back, staring at the ceiling of the cave, panting for air. His right eye had swelled up, now turning a

A "Back in Five Minutes" sign was hung in the window in a cloud of sparkling unicorn magic, as Rarity strode past a large boulder that sat by the path, pointedly ignoring it with the slightest upward turn of her muzzle.

Clouds of steam from the engine mingled with the fine mist of a drizzly spring morning as passengers disembarked from the express train from Canterlot.
Among them, a lavender coated unicorn mare paused to savor the pervasive scent of apple blossoms that hung in the air, smiling up at the familiar hoof carved sign hanging over the station house proclaiming her destination: Ponyville. She cast an apologetic glance over her shoulder as the passenger behind her irritably cleared his throat, and hastily stepped down onto the hoof scuffed concrete of the platform.
When she'd moved a bit out of the way of the milling crowd of earth ponies and unicorns, she paused again to properly stow the book she'd been reading, which had been hovering at her side like a dutiful companion since she'd exited the train. She pulled an umbrella from her saddlebags and opened it over her head. There it floated in a cloud of sparkling purple magic, its shaft balanced like the poin

To be perfectly candid, she was grateful for a chance to work in peace without dreading the inevitable crashes, splashes, scatterings, and tearing noises, or the strident denials and/or weeping apologies that followed them, when her sister was underhoof.
She let out a clipped sigh and adjusted her glasses on the bridge of her nose as a frantic, staccato tapping came to the front door of her boutique. Tucking her charcoal pencil behind her ear, she trotted out through her empty showroom, wondering if she'd forgotten to hang up her "Back in 5 Minutes" sign.

She'd been brought around with smelling salts, dried off with a clean, fluffy towel by the quiet yellow pegasus, and soothed with a cup of strong tea containing a shot of something the orange earth pony referred to as "apple tonic".
The lavender unicorn had scanned her from snout to tail with her glittering horn, consulting a stack of large, dusty tomes from time to time while asking her an exhaustive battery of probing questions about the past few days, to which she replied with a vague sense of disconnection from the answers, while a little purple dragon stood nearby and jotted their exchange down on a piece of parchment.

Caramel shared the love seat with Pinkie Pie, gamely trying to sip his coffee or take a bite of a pfeffernusse without spilling or getting crumbs all over due to his fiancee's relentless oscillations.
The pink mare herself was looking a tad green around the gills, and was uncharacteristically uninterested in any of the apple based baked goods freely on tap in the kitchen.
Rarity huddled on the couch wrapped in a rustic quilt, her mane bound up in a red and white checked towel, a cup of tea cooling on a barrel converted into an end table next to her. She was looking a bit peaked herself, her deep blue eyes never settling for long on any particular point in the room, although whether it was from her recent ordeal or simply from being immersed up to her horn in the Apple family's down home country decor she declined to say.

In her wake, a balloon from the Globe-Gallopers Society coasted along at full sail, barely managing to keep up with its heroic guide and guardian. An old friend and frequent patron, one Dr. McMonocle, gripped the craft's wheel in his hooves and a finely ground lens in his eye socket.

How's about a story about cuties marks, you bein' the Cutie Mark Crusaders an' all."
"Sounds boooring," complained Scootaloo. Applebloom glowered at her.

I was home.
I jerked upright in bed and looked around, blinking. There was a half-empty bottle of scotch on the dresser with a tumbler on its side next to it, while around my bedroom were scattered what appeared to be the remnants of a party pink streamers, crumpled crepe-paper and sad, half-deflated balloons lying on the floor in bunches.
"Just what in the hey was I doing last night?" I wondered. I got out of bed, expecting to feel that familiar dull throb of a hangover when I moved, but there wasn't one. Looking down, I saw that I was wearing my usual blue flannelette pajamas with the silver-embroidered stars on them.
Well, at least I hadn't gotten so drunk that I'd forgotten to get changed!
I visited the toilet, but as I was walking from there into the bathroom I suddenly heard the sound of someone operating the coffee machine in the kitche

At the final chime the doorknob stopped turning and then the door began to shudder, one, two, three times - and then it flew open with a crash and a blue-coated alicorn came galloping into the room. Her face was flushed and the whole of her body was glistening with sweat, and as soon as she was inside she slammed the door shut with her telekinetic magic and barred it.
"Pr Princess Luna?" I said.
"Wait," said Pinkie Pie, her eyes bugging out. "Esther is Princess LUNA?"
Luna was still trying to catch her breath. "Of course I'm not Esther, Pinkie Pie! But I was hoping that I'd find her here." She looked quickly around the room and then sighed in defeat. "She's not here either, is she?"
All the assembled ponies fell down on one hoof and bowed, and I quickly did the same, but Luna waved a forehoof impatiently and we all got

Luna stepped onto the podium and cast her huge cheerful green eyes across the assembled guests.
"Thank you all so much for coming!" she began. "I know the party's only just started, but I thought I'd like to get all the formalities out of the way first, if I may." She turned to the old silver-maned butler standing beside her and looked at him with mock exasperation. "Apparently it's compulsory that every royal engagement have a formal component to it!"
The butler nodded once, his serene expression unchanged.
Luna turned back and continued. "I'm so sorry that it's taken me so long to formally thank the Elements of Harmony for their courageous efforts on my behalf. You all risked your lives to undo the great evil that my jealousy and selfishness had wrought and prevented a titanic disaster from befalling our beloved Equestria. So let

"Rainbow?" Applejack said, frowning in disbelief. "Rainbow Dash? Really?"
Rarity nodded. "Oh darling, it suddenly occurred to me while I was chatting with Twilight over tea this morning. She said she felt as if she was missing something, and I suggest that it was somepony she was missing, rather. And when I suggested it was young Spike, she laughed. But then I remembered that Rainbow was also out of town. As you know, she's in Canterlot at the moment helping the Wonderbolts with the Spring Moon Festival performance that rather striking Spitfire has a marvellous aerial spectacle in store for the Princess Luna, I hear."
"Ah dunno, Rarity," said Applejack. "Ah mean, Twi and Rainbow? What do those two even have in common?"

"I do hope Rarity and the fillies are OK " thought Twilight as she battled her way through the driving rain. "I don't want to imagine what damage Applebloom and her friends have done to the boutique by now, stuck inside out of this storm!"
Her hooves splashed up muddy water as she trotted, soaking her legs, while about her the storm continued to ravage the little town. Trees bent in the growling winds and the rain was now almost a vertical wall that she had to struggle through. The umbrella she had brought from the library had long since been blown out of her telekinetic grip, and had spiralled off into the deepening darkness.
Twilight was almost at Rarity's boutique when a pony came rushing up to her out of the gloom. It was Nurse Mercy, the head of the Ponyville hospital, and she was in such a hurry that she almost ran straight into the unicorn pony.

Together Pinkie and I hurried over the surface of the moon towards Luna's castle, the glittering golden sand puffing up with each step we took. We soon left the field of polished black glass behind us, but even so, the castle still seemed an awfully long distance away.
"I thought Princess Luna wasn't on the moon anymore," I said. "Did something happen between her and Princess Celestia again?"
"Oh, Princess Luna doesn't have to stay here, silly!" laughed Pinkie. "She just feels more comfy here than in Equestria." She brought her mouth close to my ear and whispered conspiratorially. "Just between you and me I think she's still a teeny bit embarrassed about that whole 'Nightmare Moon' thing!" When Pinkie said 'Nightmare Moon' her eyes went wide and her face was lit from below like that of an actor in a B-grade horror movie

Twilight looked out the window of her study at the swirling black clouds and she frowned. "That is by far the strangest storm I have ever seen."
She had spent the afternoon trying to find information about the history of unnatural storms hitting Ponyville and by unnatural, she of course meant storms that had originated over the Everfree Forest rather than in the Storm Factory in Cloudsdale. But try as she may to concentrate, the whole business between Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie was preoccupying her.
She slammed the tome in front of her closed in frustration. "I've read that same sentence TEN TIMES now!" she muttered. "Confound these ponies! They drive me to distraction..."
She stared out the window. The whole town had been plunged into an eerie darkness. The winds that had come up around an hour ago were growing in intensity. The leaves of the tree the library had been built into shivered and rustled a

"It's absolutely wonderful to have you back home, my faithful student," Princess Celestia said to Twilight as she walked with her along the corridor that would lead to the East Wing of Canterlot Castle where the guest rooms were. "I've missed you terribly, you know."
Twilight suppressed a squeal of delight. The Princess had missed her? Oh, the things she wanted to say in reply but all she could was blush crimson and whisper, in a voice embarrassingly heavy with emotion: "I've missed you too, Princess "
"It's such a shame that you can't stay in your old tower," Celestia continued as they passed a series of huge stained-glass windows interspersed with tapestries thousands of years old portraying the history of Equestria. "I'm afraid the renovations are really quite untimely."
"It's alright, Princess," Twilight replied, looking at each of the tapestries thoughtfully as they passe

"Please, Angel Bunny - just a teeny, tiny little sip?" Fluttershy brought the spoon closer to the little rabbit's mouth, but he pouted and kicked it away.
The pegasus frowned. "You just have to take your medicine, or else that sniffle is going to get even worse!" She turned and quickly poured another spoonful, but when she looked back, Angel was gone.
Fluttershy looked this way and that, but there was no sign of the little rabbit. "Oh Angel bunny, you're too sick to play hide-and-seek!" she scolded. She looked under the sofa, behind the little coffee table with its vase of moonflowers, but she couldn't see him anywhere!
It was then that she noticed the wind had pushed open the front door of the cottage and she gasped.
She quickly trotted outside, just in time to see a tiny little cotton-tail disappearing down the garden path.
"Wait! Angel, wait!" She trotted after the little rabbit. "You'll get lost!"
Soon she came to a c

"They're selling well?" Farleigh asked eagerly. "What else does the letter say?"
"Nothing much," I replied. "Just that Mr. Orange will be requiring more dresses from you soon."
Farleigh was grinning as she tucked into her sandwich. I had learned that her favourite type of sandwich had a filling exclusively of dandelions. She had quite the appetite for such a young mare, and she managed to get through three before she finally licked the crumbs from her lips, pushing her plate towards me and hinting that she had finished.
"You can wash it up," I said, and she paused for a moment, perhaps thinking to refuse. She obviously understood that objecting wasn't fair, however, as she did as she was told, running hot water onto the plate and then drying it off with a towel. When finished, she sat opposite me, scooping Artemis back up into her lap.
"Oh, there is one more thing that the letter says," I added. She cocked her head dubiously to the side and I continued: "I'm going to be visiting one of
Friendship is Magic: a ReviewNostalgia can be a funny thing it's the sort of emotional impulse that makes a man do crazy things. Things like purchasing the "Sonic Underground" box-set, simply because I enjoyed it as a kid. But there's something inherently disappointing about nostalgia; the realisation that these experiences often remain a part of our childhood for a reason. Watching "Sonic Underground" as a 19-year old is a very different experience to watching it as a youngster on Saturday mornings. The once beloved show now appears to me as a train-wreck of embarrassing musical montages, repetitive pacing and rather dated animation. Getting old is no fun when it brings out the critic within.Friendship is Magic: a Review in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Thankfully, I have re-ignited that joyous spark of infancy after watching "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"; a show that for me is not mired by any form of nostalgic bias.

Applejack Character ReviewIt comes as something of a surprise that Applejack represents the spirit of Honesty within "Friendship is Magic". Although one would scarcely dare to call Applejack a liar, Honesty is perhaps not her greatest virtue. Nevertheless, Applejack has so many positive attributes honesty included that her representation in the Pilot as this particular embodiment of the Elements of Harmony makes sense, even if it seems a little odd at first. After all, what else would Applejack represent? Her character within the show is synonymous with both a maturity beyond her years and an unmatched compassion for her peers, to the extent that she becomes, to this viewer, the unofficial leader of the group.Applejack Character Review in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Its darker side and its desire for more
To join the herd of egotistical pricks

Leaving behind my reputation and getting out

Fluttershy Character ReviewReviewing the character of Fluttershy is certainly no easy task. After all, she's arguably the most-loved character within the show and the certified fan-favourite for many, so much so that criticising her character would lead to a lot of dissent amongst the masses. Indeed, finding something mean to say about Fluttershy would be reductive and not terribly necessary, as anyone who has watched "Friendship is Magic" for more than ten minutes knows how adorably sweet she is. And, in a show that actively promotes friendship, kindness and positivity, it would be counter-productive to insult Fluttershy, when she is the greatest embodiment of everything that the show represents.Fluttershy Character Review in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But what is it about Fluttershy that makes her so appealing to many? It could be her graceful appearance: a subtle and soft yellow with the trademark long, pink tail and mane which serves as a protective barrier that she can frequently hide behind.

Rainbow Dash Character ReviewBold, brave, daring and tenacious...these are words that one would usually associate with Rainbow Dash in "Friendship is Magic". But how about adorable, innocent and, at times, insecure? Rainbow Dash may be the sporty member of the group and the most tomboyish female within the mane cast, but this does not detract from the fact that, like every other pony, she has a multi-layered personality that allows her to express all sorts of emotions, both positive and negative. Some are naturally the sort of temperaments that one would normally match Rainbow Dash with, but it would be a great injustice to merely suggest that Rainbow Dash is concerned with competitions and little else.Rainbow Dash Character Review in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Of course, there are competitive elements in her personality. It is revealed early into the series that she and Applejack, although good friends, are also rivals.

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Season 2 ReviewThere should be little doubt at this stage that I was a huge fan of the first season of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". As specified in my review of the first season, I had a lot of praise to direct towards the show due to its cohesive nature and its excellent writing. In retrospect, while I may have spoken too fondly of the show for my own good having been swept up in the fad, so to speak I now find the greatest success of the first season as a whole to be the effective continuity throughout. The pilot episodes and "The Ticket Master" set things up wonderfully and "The Best Night Ever" realised the lofty expectations established at the very beginning of the series. Because of its conclusive nature, the first season plays out very much as a mini-series that stands up well on its own; by the end everything is resolved, and the show could have happily ended there, having made its mark on the world of animation and sparked off the fandom that we see today.My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Season 2 Review in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The Return of Harmony ReviewDiscord, wielder of chaos and wanton destruction, is the new villain in town in Episode 1 and 2 of the second season of "Friendship is Magic", and, after being unsealed from the statue that has kept him at bay for hundreds of years, it is once again up to Twilight Sparkle and her many friends to deal with the incoming threat. Of course, after amassing such an enormous fan-base of unprecedented fans of all ages, there was a lot of concern amongst fans about what Season 2 might be like, given the high quality of the first season. With expectations to live up to, the show would have to pull something excellent out of the bag for these first two episodes, as they herald the future of a show that has become a beloved aspect of people's daily lives.The Return of Harmony Review in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Luna, Lyra and Bon-Bon ReviewThe fandom that has developed in the wake of "Friendship is Magic" is largely something that I cherish and make a part of my daily life. I would like to consider myself actively involved in the community, spending a lot of time surfing Equestria Daily, commenting on various excerpts of pony news, talking to a lot of bronies both on DeviantArt and outside the site, and even lending my hand to a pony-related project or two. I love chatting to the many unique individuals who all have their own reasons for adoring the show, and I find it to be a thoroughly engaging experience to converse with other people of a similar mindset to myself. I have seen excellent remixes and mash-ups of the songs and scenes from the show and have been, frankly, amazed by the fan-made content. Only today did I see a custom Pinkie animation made by one very talented individual who should be offered a part animating on the show right away.

Before diving into this, I think some background would be useful. When she was young, she had dreams. Dreams of shining and of making others shine. She made herself and others look beautiful; for that initial interim she held high. When she fell (south of Ponyville, Old Manehattan-land) her dreams became nightmares, seizing her by the hoof and never letting go. She was taken and put into a bed of rust and red crosses. I was one of the few who had the time to give. She wanted me dead but it pained her to see me walk out those sliding doors.
Now, I won't pretend I understand. I never will know what she went through for those ten months and two days. She had a constant sting in her side that she claimed she could only numb by sticking her head in the stove. Her nightmares became easier during this time. And I like to think that I did my best in the time that she had to make her comfortable, even when the sting became too painful to breathe.
But let it be known that this w
